What appears to be a small Italian eatery in a strip mall turned out to have great food and great service! Will definitely bring my friends and family back there!

Fantastic, extensive Menu that is tastilly prepared and presented by their head chef and kitchen staff. Wait Staff is usually very attentive and friendly. Decor of the restaurant's interior gives the ambience of eating in Italy.....definitively NOT in a strip mall in New Jersey. Reasonable priced. BYOB Eat in or take out.

Nice restaurant-BUT-everything is ala carte; potatoes, vegetable, salad, entree,etc. The good part about this restaurant is the fact that it's a BYOB. A little pricey, although good food. Decor and decorations are very nice. Quiet, where you can talk, bring a date,etc. Located in a L shaped strip mall.

Delicious. I have been driving past this restaurant since 2013 when I relocated to NJ. I know I wanted to try it but never took the time. About a month ago I finally did. Looks are deceiving, it is quite large inside and decorated very nicely. We were seated quickly and while we took our time to look over the... More

We loved the decor and ambiance. The service was exemplary and the food was some of the best we have ever eaten in this... More

Ok here I go again, all dressed up for a nice dinner at a so called upscale restaurant, this restaurant is overpriced for the portions and the quality of food given. Let me say this, when I start to worry is when I approach the entrance and the entry mat is worn and messy. the plants outside have been neglected,... More

The atmosphere was O.K., but nothing special. They appeared to be a little short staffed the evening we were there. The food was good, but again, nothing where you would say WOW!

I decided to go to Christies with my family for my birthday dinner! It was delicious and the hostess, Mary, was so sweet! My 19 month old granddaughter was with us and, of course, after a while she got restless! Mary spent about 45 minutes entertaining her and was so sweet! My granddaughter fell in love with her!
